Windows command line options

Due to some logic in the java exe wrapper launch4j I have got a report of some unexpected behavior when using my tools filebydate, jotasync and mapollage from the command line on Windows.

In launch4j, it is possible to classify an exe as a TUI _or_ GUI application, this will cause the exe to call the java or javaw command.

Calling java will always create a console window too and calling javaw will never display text output.

This is not what we want for my tools since they are combined GUI/TUI applications.

The solutions is pretty simple, just force the exe to start with java.exe.

E.g.

java -jar mapollage.exe --help

I have created some helper bat files that will be included in the next release of each tool, until then, just download the manually.

Enjoy!
